2 million brilliant red salmon reach the beautiful little
Adams River near the Rocky Mountains of Canada. Here they spawn and die in an extraordinary wildlife spectacle watched by a quarter of a million people. Their dramatic story of survival includes avoiding killer whales, fur seals, bears, sharks, ospreys and otters as well as man's fishing lines, nets, dams, pollution and finally involves a journey up Hell's Gate Canyon.
And much of this is seen from the salmon's point of view! Photography RICK ROSENTHAL Film editor CHRIS ORRELL Producer RICHARD BROCK BBC Bristol
